Product Managers (PdM) at Rangle work with clients to understand their business objectives, customer needs, and how they are reflected in product vision and goals. With this shared understanding, they partner to ensure the right product strategy, roadmap and execution to achieve those business objectives and customer goals. They will be involved in defining the product vision and the value proposition for end users.
PdMs have experienced the full end-to-end ideation and delivery of a product. They bring not just best practices, but applied knowledge in bringing a product to market, understanding that not all products are created equal. They are able to prioritize business and customer value against technical complexity and work effort, including the time required to achieve the overall business strategy.
Reporting to the Director of Product Management, they plan for the future of a product, not just its immediate circumstances and needs, and keep Rangle on the forefront of product development.
